Yes! We Have MOTION!

I am thoroughly pleased to say, that Friday and Saturday, close to three miles of ground were covered. Yeah man we're back WALKING again.

Gotta tell a bit of a story about my youngest, known lovingly as Wrecking Crew. Friday the boys were my motivation to walk. Cub was insistent we get the job done, and told me in no uncertain terms to Cowgirl UP.

Wrecking Crew however....

As we were gearing up in our socks and sneakers, my sweet little Wrecker sat on the couch next to me and sighed heavily. He said, "Mom, I don't want to walk. My legs get tired." I told him we would only go a little ways, and that it would really help me out if he came with us. "OK Mom. I'll go for a little bit."

Well out we go. And I watched my sweet Wrecking Crew. That child.... that child probably RAN four miles to my walking one and a half. Up, down, back and forth, over and over again... the child never stopped.

If we could bottle that energy...!!

Taking Sundays off from walking. Monday we pick back up with getting slowly back to the pathetic shuffle jog routine too. We'll keep you posted on how things go!

But Sundays you get to exercise your trigger finger!

Wonder how many calories I burned this weekend sitting on the couch cranking out an ungodly number of words?

I REALLY need to "dig out" the room the treadmill is in. Needs to get my butt back on track!

Yay! I need to get back to it too. Maybe tomorrow.

Yeah! Glad to hear you made it out and did something - something is way better than nothing. I'm really good at "nothing" - I need to get my arse moving!

Kids are funny about how they "don't wanna..." and then end up having a riot. Too funny.
